Kelly's pursuing a life-long passion for fitness. After leaving a nine year career in sales, Kelly began training friends and family out of a spare bedroom in her house.

From there, Kelly opened a larger space inside Kansas City Sports Club and expanded her business to small group classes and personal training. Additionally, she's excited to have an amazing team of experienced trainers. Small group training is growing in popularity because people want a "personal trainer" style workout on a fixed budget.
